How Judging Will Work
This year each judge will be assigned to a team to judge a particular category. Each team of judges will be expected to look at all the projects for the category they have been assigned to picking the 1st, 2nd, 3rd place winners for their category. Judging teams will be assigned at the judge's orientation on the day of the fair.
